4 LIGO-G A-M April 5, ISC Work Breakdown Structure (WBS Dictionary Available at

5 LIGO-G A-M April 5, ISC Cost by WBS

6 LIGO-G A-M April 5, ISC Schedule Highlights

7 LIGO-G A-M April 5, ISC Staffing Profile

8 LIGO-G A-M April 5, ISC Major Milestones

9 LIGO-G A-M April 5, Subsystem Cost Estimating Basis Cost estimating reliant on extrapolation from initial LIGO experiences due to custom nature of electronics » Wherever possible, representative quotes taken from industry –PCB manufacturing facilities (PCB Express) –Circuit board stuffing (Screaming Circuits) –Huntington Vacuum etc. for standard vacuum parts –Accuglass Vacuum connections Estimates for LIGO designed electronics based on repackaging of existing designs wherever applicable Travel » Estimated based on LIGO 1 experience and extrapolated to Advanced LIGO complexity

10 LIGO-G A-M April 5, ISC Risks and Concerns Staffing availability » Schedule assumes personnel familiar with LIGO designs » Possible mitigation in improved standards for documentation and written processes » Training of personnel to expand their roles » Use of outside testing facilities Quality Control » Historically, this is a point of weakness » Efforts to mitigate include –Better test procedures –Use of unbiased outside testing facilities –Better pier review process

11 LIGO-G A-M April 5, Safety Practices Laser Safety » Laser safety practices will be in accordance with standing approved LIGO laser safety practices Electrical Safety » Systems with hazardous electrical voltages such as photo- diode bias supplies will be designed and used in accordance with approved LIGO electrical standards and procedures
